The total length of the alignment route is (98km) and (12km) for the lines inside the station.

- Review of main and branch line alignments
A detailed survey is to be carried out for the proposed work, and consists of the following:

ABG would carrying out a series of activities during this stage, in order to adhere to the technicalities involved. This includes a field survey to mark out the alignment of main & branch lines of the project, on the ground by using relocating concrete pillars as under.
- Center line pillars
- Distance between each pillar shall be 250 (m) for both straight & curve alignments
A detailed set of draft drawings indicating data features such as structures, roads, rivers, public services etc would be prepared & supplied. Also a feasibility study report will be prepared for this stage which includes the consultant proposals & recommendations for updating the alignments in the locations required.
The final survey intends to cover the process of marking out the final design of the approved alignment on the ground by the use of concrete pillars, bench mark (BM) pillars & reference pillars (RP) in addition to those used earlier. Here a distance of 250 (m) and 100 (m) would be maintained between each pillar in the straight & curved alignment respectively.
